    I am studying for the CPR certification using the American Heart Association Student Manual purchased Sept. 2013 . When taking the Practice Test, there appears to several contradictions or no information relating to the questions: 1) no info on DR-ABC which is also contra to the new SEQUENCE of C-A-B, 2) the max. time it takes to you should spend checking for breathing, 3) How long (seconds) should a rescue breath roughly take to inflate the casualty’s lungs? The comparison of this student manual is causing conflict of info. Help.I have made hand written notes by creating a chart.
